Hi everybody... I'm having a bit of an issue here. Over the past year or so, my installation had become kind of messed up with all the desktop environments and other "flavours" I had installed. It was causing some errors here and there, and I was tired of fixing them as they popped up, so I decided to just do a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I backed up my home folder on a flash drive, and did a clean install on the SSD where Ubuntu resides. Everything went really well, except when it came time to transfer the contents of my old home folder into the new one. It wouldn't let me view the files until I opened it using sudo with the terminal.
After I transferred the contents of my old home folder into my new one, I tried decrypting some files with "decrypt file", but it said "Decryption failed. You probably do not have the decryption key." Clearly there's something I've missed.
Here's the question: How can I use my old private key to decrypt my files? I'm stumped! Any help would be greatly apprectiated!
